Well I broke down and got the Garmin yesterday and I have to say it rocks! And the numbers are all large enough to read! Only one issue, I had it set to miles not km without knowing it and thankfully the chimes still came in per km though the overall distance was showing miles. Have since sorted all that out so its all showing metric now. Was a longer run today and it was the last long run before my 10k race on Sunday. It was a nice sunrise run through both sides of the cemetery, and I loved the ability to glance down and see my pace so I could adjust at any time. No fiddling with my phone apart from starting the 150 bpm playlist and just going. Have a feeling that me and Ms. Garmin are going to get along really well! Love the app interface too.
